Brewhouse Gallery Shows New Artwork, Shares New Brews and Slips in Fun

The walls of The Brewhouse Gallery’s have new pieces of art!   Part eclectic hipster lounge/part modern New York art gallery, it’s a creative space to hang out, sip a brew, hold a meeting, share ideas, listen to music and appreciate local art. Free Wi-Fi and comfortable furniture (that is also for sale) make you feel right at home.  In addition, there are new taps and new artists! The Rickie Report sensed it from the beginning…The Brewhouse Gallery is more than an art gallery… AJ Brockman’s vision has truly created a community in Lake Park.  The Rickie Report shares some highlights for the end of December through January.  Don’t miss Whiskey Wasps’ live performance, Meet the Artist Night with Special Gift Certificates, Vintage Bike Night and Suga Wack for the Sunday night Jazz Series!

Wynwood Brewing

Wynwood Brewing’s Craft Beers

 

 

Check out our Wynwood “Tap Spotlight” @ The Brewhouse Gallery. The brewery is located in the heart of the Miami arts scene and they have been huge supporters of the Brewhouse family from day one. The first craft beer we ever poured was their blonde ale “La Rubia”. Did you miss the release “Death of Elvis” – a bacon, peanut butter and banana porter that has never been released outside the brewery?

"Bride and Groom" by Barbara Cheives

“Bride and Groom” by Barbara Cheives

Trina Slade-Burks

“Sewing and working with fabric was always something that I was fascinated with since I was a little girl. My mother would create fabulous outfits using patterns and designs either store-bought or from her own artistic creations. I personally did not have an interest in using the sewing machine, however, I did learn how to do basic hand sewing.  I was always intrigued by lace and other types of trim and I temporarily considered fashion design as a career path.”

 

 

"Doll Baby" by Trina Slade-Burks

“Doll Baby” by Trina Slade-Burks

Trina tells The Rickie Report, ” When I moved to south Florida, my pen pal from New York encouraged me to work for a company called Brooklyn Bow and Ribbon. It was an 80-year hat bow company that moved from Long Island New York to Riviera Beach. They produced bows for clothing and packaging. I started in their factory and ended up being a designer for their sales department. I would turn blasé sales boards into trendy works of art. It got to the point that the sales people were spoiled by the visual intensity of the work I would produce with basic fabric and bows. Hence, my love of playing with fabrications began! 

 I continue to incorporate fabric into a lot of my artwork stemming from what I used to do for BBR.  I realized that fashion design did not need to be my path, for me to pursue my love of working with fabrications and textiles”.  To reach Trina, please email: trinasb@atbfineartists.com

Barbara Cheives

“Over the years I have developed an appreciation for the garments, art and culture of Japan. I also have a natural affinity for the African culture.  “Afrasia” was born as a unique marriage of cultures that preserves vintage Japanese Kimono and Obi blended with modern African fabric, African inspired trims, beads, and “found” items.”

 

She tells The Rickie Report, “I spend my days as a consultant working to bridge the gap between cultures and I continue that work through my art. As a Fiber Artist, my one of a kind wearable and decorative art represents a harmonious blend of cultures”.  Contact her at afrasia1@bellsouth.net  or https://www.facebook.com/barbara.cheives

“Collaborations and Mixed Mediums” is Coming! CALLING ALL ARTISTS NOW

 Jonathon Ortiz Smykla and Evelyn Ortiz Smykla of OSGS have a BIG dream. “Collaborations and Mixed Mediums” is a charitable Fine Art Exhibition that will take place at the CCE (Center for Creative Education) building on 24th Street in Northwood Village. The Opening Reception night is March 7th and the exhibit will run the entire month of March. OSGS Gallery is the Host Gallery and Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla is the show’s producer.  The Rickie Report believes that you have to dream BIG in order to succeed, so we are sharing this CALL TO ARTISTS!!!!  Attention Art Patrons: Mark your calendars now for this Spectacular event!

 

 

 

OSGScollaboration1

 

 

TRR:  Why is March 7th Opening Reception such a big deal?

JOS:

The Sponsorships are Big!  From the moment you arrive there will be Valet on hand and a Red Carpet Entry with a step-and-go photo opportunity! At the door there will be a suggested donation for the CCE, but that is small peanuts compared to the offerings ahead… The Entry will flow the attendees directly through the Exhibition, which is the highlight of the evening. I am trying to highlight Collaboration works so I am very interested in Artists working together to show their skills. The other side of the exhibition is Mixed Mediums”.

 

OSGScollaboration2

 

 TRR: What should attendees expect?

JOS:

“I am opening the Art Call to Artists so that I can also represent works to compliment Collaboartion pieces, maybe not necessarily Artist Collaborations but collaborations of mediums. That will also be open to installation work for consideration. To keep the evening lively, Tito’s Handmade Vodka will be on hand with a couple of specialty drinks, along with Table 427 for the culinary treats. C-Keys Recording and Vinyl will be providing the evening’s musical entertainment. Easel Art has graciously donated some materials so there will be Artists present who will be Collaborating, Live”.

 

OSGScollaboration3

 

“This will clearly be the biggest event that is currently lined up for March. So after we’ve all settled down from the Art Fair stretch in South Florida, we can take a moment to celebrate and highlight our Local Talent while helping a charity that teaches and nurtures children’s learning abilities through the Arts. That is reason enough to get excited about this event, it just so happens that I’m providing a social scene to accompany the evening.”

 

 

 

OSGScollaboration4

TRR: How can more people (art lovers, art patrons and      local vendors) get involved?

JOS:

“I’m still reaching out for additional sponsorships to round out the evening but the most recent has been the West Palm Beach CRA and other Northwood area merchants. Interested vendors and artists should contact me now, so they will be included in the massive marketing and publicity campaign preceding this event! “

“Equal Time”, was the cry from Dog Lovers, after the successful “Cat-O-Strophic Event” in October. Artists have come forward bringing both quirky and serious portraits in an endless variety of media. Many of these artists can be contacted in advance for custom portraits of individual, family pets and breeds. Unlike the “Cat-O” show, Canine enthusiasts are specific about breed preferences in their art.
